Every semester, SUNY Ulster is host to several lecture series that are free and open to the public. These include many distinguished speakers in a variety of fields, from science to business to politics.
This lecture series, named in honor of renowned local naturalist John Burroughs (1837-1921), is sponsored by the Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) Department and seeks to periodically bring speakers to the SUNY Ulster campus to offer free lectures to the academic community and the general public on topics of interest in the natural sciences.
SUNY Ulster founded the Institute for Constitutional Studies to help college faculty, students, teachers, business people, the legal community and the general public in the Mid-Hudson Valley deepen their understanding of the fundamental principles of the United States and the New York state constitutions, their history and their continuing relevance to current public policy debates.
The event is free and open to the public. For information, contact 687-5262.
The Elizabeth Gross Lecture Series is an annual horticultural series made possible through a bequest received by the Ulster Garden Club from long-term club member and Kingston resident, Mrs. Elizabeth Gross.
The Howard C. St. John Distinguished Lecture Series was established in recognition of Howard C. St. John's many contributions to Ulster County. This annual lecture series features speakers who address issues of government, business, law, or public policy.
